Outline

Outline

This is an intercalated course designed to enable Curtin Medical School (CMS) Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) students gain experience of research and to achieve an AQF level 8 qualification. This will enable students to be eligible to progress to a higher degree by research through the PhD pathway. This is a stepping stone for medical students to pursue a clinician scientist pathway, post-internship. Students will develop critical thinking skills and application to their field of research. Independent and supervisor guided learning relevant to the research project will enable students to develop subject specific knowledge and research skills. Students will work with a supervisor to develop their research protocol and complete their research activities and data collection, analyse their results and write up the research.

What you'll learn

  • justify a research approach using epidemiological, sociological, health services research or biomedical principles and concepts
  • design solutions or strategies for problems identified within a field of research
  • communicate research findings to a variety of audiences such as experts in the field and communities
  • demonstrate national and international research standards relevant to the research process and ethical reasoning
  • demonstrate knowledge of issues related to cultural safety and equity in relation to the research process and research outcomes
  • interpret findings of research within the context of quality of patient care or healthy communities
  • demonstrate proficiency in conducting an ethical approach to clinical research
